Film and culture critic Mike Sargent joins me to discuss the Gina Rodriguez anti-black debacle, the Tom Brokaw anti-Latino statements on Meet The Press, and why M. Night Shamalan’s new film 'Glass' is reviled by critics but adored by fans. (1:28)

We also talk to Hugo Balta, President of the NAHJ to help me tackle the bloodbath that took place this past week with over 1,000 journalists who were laid-off. What should unemployed Latino journalists do now, how do journalism students stay hopeful of the media industry and we discuss how he dealt with the Tom Brokaw news as President of the NAHJ and being a Senior Producer at MSNBC. (24:17)
